AFRICAN DIASPORA IN BRAZIL

slavery in brazil

Slavery in brazil was like the worst out of all the country and they was the last country to end brazil.During the Atlantic slave trade era, Brazil received more African slaves than any other country. An estimated 4.9 million slaves from Africa were brought to Brazil during the period from 1501 to 1866. This is the first time that Slavery this bad happened Slavery in different country began to happen. This was a change from what happened before because there was no slavery in brazil before the portugal came since then i gotten worse.Until the early 1850s, most enslaved Africans who arrived on Brazilian shores were forced to embark at West Central African ports, especially in present-day Angola. This is similar to slavery when in 1501 to 1866 this is another example of being force to work which could be seen before in 1501 this is a continuation of slavery before

Capoeira is an art form that defies description. It is a fight, resistance in slavery it was also a dance it capoeira started in the 16th century by slaves who were taken from west africa to brazil this is resistance because the slave ownersttold them not to dance or fight and they were doing both in capoeira. capoeira was helpful because they are teaching eachother how to fight just in case if it is needed it was also helpful to them because they are fightback to what they are told (capoeira brazil)
